Ten years since its only performance at Julio Estrada’s home country, Fonema Consort performs his 30 minute piece Mictlan, derived from his opera “Murmullos del Páramo,” at the Foro Manuel Enríquez in Mexico City, thus marking Fonema’s Mexican debut, and third international appearance. In addition to collaborating with Estrada, Fonema presents pieces by its resident composers Pablo Santiago Chin and Joan Arnau Pàmies featuring Kathryn Schulmeister as bassist and vocalist/actress, and Daniel Peter Biro’s “Be Mitzraim” for percussion and the percussionist’s voice, featuring Ryan Packard.
